"Our prayers go out to the families involved in this tragic fire, to the neighbors, and to our firefighters", Erie city officials said in their Facebook post.

Santone said the firefighters "did a hell of a job" knocking down the fire and rescuing the children who were still inside the house within minutes of arriving on the scene.

Four people were injured, including two teenagers who jumped from a second-floor window onto a porch of the home in Erie to escape the flames, Erie Fire Chief Guy Santone told CNN in an interview.

The victims ranged in age from eight months to seven years.

The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership lists a daycare at the fire address.

"The fire was just nuts... nuts", she said.

Valerie Lockett-Slupski told Go Erie that four of her grandchildren, two boys and two girls, were among the children who died in the fire.

'So we are all at a loss, trying to figure out how this happened, ' Lockett-Slupski was quoted as saying as she stood across from the remains of the daycare center.

It began some time before 1:12am Sunday, but the authorities came forward with the devastating news only later in the afternoon, saying the blaze claimed the lives of five children, also injuring a woman living there, reportedly the owner. She added that the children had been staying at the day care because their parents were working overnight.

CNN reports that officials say there was only one fire detector in the home, located in the attic.

The next step in the investigation will involve bringing in additional resources to help in determining the fire's cause, Widomski said.
